    I recently acquired a pair of Romeo 1's. Unfortunatly it didn't have the upper gaskets, since linegear is probably going to take a while I took it upon myself to make my own gaskets. I took some extra nosebombs and cut them up traced the pattern from the Romeo and used the nosebomb material as gaskets and it worked great.
    My question is on tightening them up....i turned the T6 Screws until it stopped turning, i didn't torque down on it at all. And the frames are so tight and rigid now. I have a small head and i put them on over the top of my head like goggles. I just didn't know if it was supposed to be that rigid and tight?

    they should flex a little i'd imagine, but if you have original lenses, i really suggest taking them out before you ruin them. Odds are that the frame WILL crack them eventually.

    They have a tiny bit of flexibility but nothing compared to the others.

    I already took out the stock lenses, they already had cracks on them.
    Installed some cheapo exovista for now.
